thanks for the article, I think it hits it right on the head with the stress of UC making  the immune system/inflammation go wacky and making UC worse, kindav like a revolving door.  My only question is which came first, my wacky immune system/inflammatory resonse or my increased stress??

My first flare came when I was under a lot of stress and over worked and will start to flare if I have not slept well for about a week.
Dx:  UC Proctitis 2006 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence. 
Started Meds:  Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare, tapering, stopped. 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 Added: tumeric and probiotics.
